From the airport to the hotel, you can take shuttle bus line 2 to Yonghegong Lama Temple. Then use local subway line 5 to get off at Dengshikou. Get out from exit C and you can walk there in 650 meters.

To catch a plane that early, the best and the only way shall be taking a taxi.

you mean your hotel in Beijing city?
it is possible for you to wait at the airport.
you can take the subway airport express line, and the first subway leaves the airport at 06:21 for terminal building 3 and 06:35 from T2.

tq wendy. my hotel at shizi hutong. but im planning to drop by to xidan for winter cloth shopping. so I want to wait at Beijing airport before going by bus or train to xidan in the morning.

Wendy :11/25/2013 5:53:46 PM

if you plan for winter cloth shopping in Xidan, i suggest that you stay longer in the airport, as most shops and markets won't open until 09:00.
airport bus line 2 runs to Xidan directly, so you may consider take the bus rather than subway.

there are airport shuttle buses as long as there is flight arriving at the airport.
so you can take the airport shuttle bus nightline to Xidan, and then take a taxi to the hotel. the bus fare is CNY16 per person and the taxi fare is about CNY20.

Hi. I am arriving in beijing airport. going to jin jiang inn beijing zoo branch in Xicheng District. I have 2 pieces of luggage. What is the cheapest way to go to the hotel? Will there be a bus that will stop near my hotel? thanks

the cheapest way is to take airport shuttle bus line 2 (CNY16) and get off at Xizhimen QiaoNan stop. however, there is still over 1 km to walk to your hotel, but it is also a good opportunity to get close to the local community. from the bus stop, you walk back (northward) for about 160 meters, and turn left onto the Xizhimenwai South Road. head westward for another 200 meters and turn right at the second turning. then walk north again for only 80 meters, and turn left at the first turning. continue to walk west and at the end of the lane turn right. head northward until you reach the main street of Xizhimen Wai Street. There walk across the overpass and turn left to move westward. when you see the Beijing Exhibition Hall, turn right onto the road east of it and continue to walk for about 150 meters, you will find the hotel.
Another way is to take subway airport express line and then change to line 2 at Dongzhimen, and then line 4 at Xizhimen.
alight at Beijing Zoo (Dong Wu Yuan) station and leave from Exit C. walk eastward along the road and turn left at the Beijing Exhibition hall, and then head north for anothter 200 meters, you will the hotel. the walking distance is only 600 meters, but the fare is CNY 27 per person. also, it will be inconvenience for you to make transfer at subway stations with your two suitcases.
the most conveniet way is take a taxi, but costs CNY 100.

I want to know from where do I get Airport Bus to Tianjin and how much time does it take to reach Tianjin and the cost?

Himanshu ( India ) :8/26/2013 9:28:18 PM

Is their a direct bus to Tianjin University of Technology if yes which and where will I get it? Also how much will it cost me?

vic :8/27/2013 6:03:27 PM

no, there is no direct bus from Beijing Airport to Tianjin University of Technology. upon arrival Tianjin by airport bus, you can take a taxi to the university, costing CNY 50.

Hmanshu ( India ) :8/27/2013 9:02:25 PM

Thank you so much for the information . Can you also guide me about the very first bus what time it leaves. My arrival at airport is 3.30 am.

Vic :8/28/2013 6:03:18 PM

the first bus leaves from Beijing Airport at 07:30, and the second will leave one hour later. so i guess you will have a short rest in the airport.

I arrived at the peking airport at 1 am. How do i get bus???

From king parkview hotel, you may take a taxi to Xidan (CNY10), chaneg to airport shuttle bus line 2 to capital airport.
Since you will arrive at Shenzhen airport in an early morning, taxi may be the only choice for you.

I will be arriving at NANYUAN AIRPORT from QIQIHAR(NDG) on 30/09/2012 and want to go to PEK-BEIJING airport to catch the onward flight to MUMBAI.Please tell me is there any internal airport shuttle service to go to this another airport? or How to reach another airport.

take it easy,
although there is no direct bus, you can take the airport shuttle bus from Nanyuan airport to Xidan, then take another shuttle bus to the Capital Airport.
